Bank of Greece Governor Yannis Stournaras on Monday stressed the need to seek and activate instruments such as a bad bank, as the so-called Hercules Asset Protection Scheme (HAPS) is considered insufficient, while he also recommended taking recourse to the credit line of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM).
The Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV) estimates the burden on the state budget from the shuttering of enterprises at about 6 billion euros per month, and recommends an immediate market foray while the timing remains favorable, given the low yields, as most states will also try to tap the markets soon.
